HISTORY: Forget Jack and Rose. Let us remember the real hearoes during the sinking of RMS Titanic. One of those heroes is the Catholic priest, Reverend Thomas Byles.
When Titanic struck an iceberg and is about to sink, Rev. Byles helped children, women and other people to the lifeboats. While he is active in saving other people, the priest did not forgot his calling. He also led the prayers, give absolution and comforted the people.
He went down with the ship because he didn’t want to abandon remaining passengers who need his presence and the presence of God.
